A teenager from Carmarthenshire has been charged with offences relating to international computer crimes, police have said.
Detectives said 19-year-old Daniel Mark Kelley stands accused of a denial of service (DoS) attack on a local college, two counts of blackmail and money laundering.
Kelley, from Llanelli, was charged at Belgravia Police Station in London yesterday.
Dyfed Powys Police said Kelley was arrested following an investigation by the Tarian Regional Cyber Crime Unit.
Referring to the charges, a force spokesman added Kelley is alleged to have carried out a DoS attack on sixth-form college Coleg Sir Gar - which later affected submissions of coursework and the administration of examinations.
He also stands accused of blackmailing two people working for firms in Australia and Canada as well as money laundering.
Kelley has been bailed ahead of a court appearance at Westminster Magistrates' Court next month.
A crowdfunding drive has been launched to hep preserve a World War Two flying boat which sank off Pembroke Dock.

Members of the British Sub-Aqua Club are on a mission to preserve the airframe. But need equipment to keep going.
They have spent almost a decade salvaging historic artefacts from the wreck, which are on display to the public at the UK’s only Flying Boat Interpretation Centre, the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre.

Nearly 6 million fraud and cyber crimes are committed every year across the UK, with one in 10 people falling to scams, according to a new survey.
The findings from the Crime Survey for England and Wales show that fraud is now the most common crime likely to be experienced by the general population, with people 20 times more likely to be a victim of fraud than robbery and 10 times more likely to suffer fraud than theft.
The most common types of fraud were bank and credit account fraud, with 2.5 million incidents, followed by "non-investment" fraud, such as scams related to online shopping.
Banks work extremely hard to protect their customers and stopped 7 in every 10 of attempted fraud last year. The industry is continually evolving its response to fraud as it develops, investing in new detection and verification tools. (Fraudsters are) increasingly targeting people directly.
